Wow! I'm still in awe with the feedback we got yesterday when we kicked off February 2017 in style!
I've had people message me saying they've been so excited for our countdown to start and that alone has made my day. (Actually, who am I kidding - it made my year!)
This project is so dear to my heart and having people reach out in order to get involved means a lot to me.
I will probably spend a lot of time writing about how excited I am for you to see the videos - and that's because I truly couldn't be more thrilled to showcase some incredible artists.
I do believe that you are going to find some new favourites this year.
So let's dive into day 2!!!
What is #HITSBC17?
HITSBC17 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2017.
Throughout the entire month of February, we are going to celebrate house in the sand's fifth birthday.
(Because why celebrate on one day, if you can celebrate an entire month, right?)
With the support from some of the finest artists and bands around, each day in February will be filled with an exclusive performance just for us.
Who is performing today?
She's a singer/songwriter from Derry, Nothern Ireland.
Roisin Donald, the lady behind ROE is an incredibly exciting newcomer. With her sound she manages to create an edgy Pop sound which has gotten her the attention of BBC Radio 6's Tom Robinson.
ROE's debut EP got a lot of from from BBC and rightly so.
Her sophomore called "You Call It Art" is set for release in Spring 2017 - so there's one more reason why we can't wait for Spring!!
What needs to be said about this performance?
Well, this performance is just another proof that ROE is "one to watch". Stunning vocals and soft guitar chords create a fragile melancholy and allows us to relax and dream away for a little less than four minutes.
(Unless you hit replay, like we did.)
Check out ROE performing her song "Etc Etc" for us below!

Who deserves a thank you?
The wonderful ROE for celebrating with us by recording this fantastic performance.
And massive thanks to Liam for setting this up being so easy to work with!

Thank you for your visit!
